Welcome to Grimpstonleigh!


You can see why so many visitors return year after year to this very special place

If you are looking for the idyllic family holiday, romantic break or just a rest from the trials of everyday life, look no further than Lower Grimpstonleigh. This is the home of Kevin Frost and his son, Robbie, whose welcome goes much further than you would expect.This peaceful valley lies just a few miles north of the market town of Kingsbridge on the Totnes road. Down a quaint lane you discover an oasis of luxury barns, sympathetically converted to blend into the undulating countryside, offering the most spectacular views and yet only 15 minutes drive from the cream of South Devon beaches and coastline of Salcombe, Bantham and Thurlestone, to name but a few.The luxury self-catering accommodation is arranged into three delightful barns, with names derived from the orchards surrounding them: Top and Cider Barn along with Apple Cottage. Kevin has converted these luxury self-catering barns to a very high standard with exposed oak beams, floors and handmade fitted kitchens and bathrooms. The quality of the furniture and fittings compliment the surroundings and the bed linen is no exception. Each little detail of welcome is finely tuned to Kevins high standard and attention to detail. You will be spoilt on arrival with a hamper of coffee beans (each barn has its own Dualit coffee machine), tea, local wine, cakes, fresh bread, organic Riverford veg box, milk, eggs, butter and, of course, Grimpstonleighs very own home-produced apple juice and cider. Alongside this are touches you would not normally expect; you dont even have to pack your wellies, as Sea Salt wellies are all provided for you in the barns just ready for a romp down the valley to splash in the stream! The only decision you have to make is which colour to choose. The quest for the best is never over, and Kevin has included two new Crown Pavilion gazebos with plump cushions round a cedar table topped with a ceiling heater to ensure your comfort when outdoors. With barbecues provided, you can take in the views whilst knowing that their little ones are safe playing on the rustic swings or climbing frames or safely tucked up in bed just a stones throw away. And if the weather in inclement, you can zip yourselves in and make it cosy! New for 2013 will be an indoor swimming pool and summer house in the valley. Children and well-behaved dogs (or should that be well-behaved children and dogs?) are welcome, but if you are looking for a quiet romantic break, Apple Cottage is set back with its own terrace for a little bit of peace and quiet. Rooter and Snooter, the Grimpstonleigh Gloucester Old Spot pigs, are on hand for back-scratching and delighting in their antics, woodland walks with hidden treasures to find, and scenic spots to enjoy. Kevin has even been known to take his regular visitors out on a fishing trip in his boat moored in Salcombe, and if you want to know more about the history of this beautiful place, dating back to the Domesday Book, and his medieval finds, cider-making and local knowledge, Kevin is more than happy to share a glass of wine with you too!
